Introduction to Logic Pro X 10.3 Professional Music Production

Duration: 3 Days

Course Information

This course is designed to provide students with the ability to record, arrange, mix, produce, and polish music. Project-based instructions teach everything from basic music creation to sophisticated production techniques. You’ll learn to record audio and MIDI, create and edit sequences, and master mixing and automation techniques such as submixing with Track Stacks or the practical uses of true stereo panning. You will create both acoustic and electronic virtual drum performances using Drummer tracks with Drum Kit Designer and Drum Machine Designer. You’ll use Logic Pro X MIDI plug-ins and Smart Controls to control software synthesizers from a MIDI controller or an iPad. Flex Time will allow you to precisely edit the timing of notes inside an audio recording, and you’ll explore Flex Pitch to correct the pitch of a vocal recording. Finally, you’ll mix, automate, and master a song, using plug-ins to process only selected sections or entire tracks, giving your audio creations the final polish needed to achieve a professional sound. Upon completing the course, you can become Apple Certified by passing the Logic Pro X 10.3 certification exam at Transmedia.
